to the first read team, if president obama wins the presidential contest, republicans would need to pick up a net of four senate seats to get that majority. senator todd akin deciding to stay in missouri's senate race despite calls from his own party to withdrawal, that's a difficult goal to achieve. here's how mark halperin put it on "morning joe" today. >> democrats could pick up a seat in the senate and i don't know what happens to the house. if the president wins by these huge margins and they take -- they pick up the senate seat rather than lose control of the senate, the house is going to be in play. >> so joining me now is editor mark murray. mark, with akin staying in this race, and doggedly so. i mean, there have been a lot of calls on the right so see him get out, which races, though, do you see as republicans' best chances to win back the senate? how likely are they win? >> thomas, as you mentioned, right now senate republicans are facing a bit of an uphill climb. not impossible. it is doable. but it is an uphill climb. some of the races that i'm looking at most closely is seeing

nationally at the presidential level and in swing states to president obama, you've seen down ballot, tim kaine in virginia, tammy baldwin in wisconsin move as well. what's interesting, as you mentioned, connecticut, to be honest, i did not think -- i'm from connecticut. linda mcmahon is republican nominee, she ran in 2010 and lost in a very good republican year. she's remarkably close at the moment to the congressman chris murphy, which you wouldn't think, given the last couple of weeks. i mean, broadly senate candidates have benefitted but there are exception. >> is that women saying it's about time we have a woman in senate from connecticut? i think she can win. i want to remind people as i did to some of our producers today, even in years where one party wins the presidency, there are people that come out of nowhere and win in the other direction. joe biden won that senate seat at the age of 29 and hasn't lost since in the governor year so there will be people that go the other way. >> i would say honestly, chris, and i hate to be so bottom line about this, but i think the best thing
